Convenient Location, provides opportunities
This farm has good scale being of some 126 hectares (more or less) with real potential for change of use. Current dairy production is averaging around 86,500 kilograms milk solids from all winter milk production. The agistment of the herd replacements plus beef finishing compliment the current landscape.
The 20 ASHB dairy shed incorporates an in-shed meal feeding system and the numerous support buildings across the farm include calf, implement and storage barns. The farm is well subdivided and raced with all-weather access to every paddock. Water supply for both farm and domestic requirements originates from a district water scheme. The soils are consolidated peat and provide a base that responds well to their regular fertiliser applications. The effluent disposal capability is a two stage sand trap and bladder system which is met by strategically placed irrigation hydrants to service approximately forty hectares.
Comfortable accommodation is furnished by the two homes which provide three and four bedrooms respectively with associated living arrangements. Given the elevated positioning of the homes you can view both the sunrise and sunset and the mountains beyond. This farm has been a consistent producer under a share farming arrangement and will be attractive to those who want to continue with such a system or others seeking to scale up and fully explore the yet to be realised potential under an owner operated system.
This proven multi-faceted farm is positioned in the highly regarded 'golden triangle' north of Te Awamutu, bringing it within easy commute to Waikato's main business hub Hamilton and the other close rural service town of Cambridge. Hamilton airport is just a short 20 minute drive away. Within an hour are the recreational coastal locations of both Raglan and Kawhia, and similarly Rotorua and Lake Taupo. Hence location is definitely your friend here, presenting the key ingredients for a change of direction or expansion of the current land use. Options abound.
